Allow me to share with you the things that I miss in the Philippines. Yes, I have enumerated a number of things that made us decide to finally move here and probably stay here ’til we grow old, but being here for less than a year and being a Filipino at heart there are still things, places, foods or activities  that I miss seeing, going to, eating  or doing. 

Today happens to be our 100th day here in Canada. How time really flies, it seems like it was just yesterday that I was too busy completing our documentations and requirements for our application as Provincial Nominee.

If you will ask me if being an Immigrant was part of my dreams or plans when I was still young, I tell you, it did not even come into my mind to work abroad most especially to live in other country permanently.

While I was browsing posts shared by my friends in Facebook, I chanced upon a post shared by a friend that really made me smile as it brought so much happy childhood memories to me. The post I am referring to was about the return of Christmas on Display (C.O.D.) in Cubao (Quezon City, Philippines). 

During our visit to the Philippines a few months ago, my sister-in-law brought me and my kids to this very popular Korean Temple in Bulacan.   I was surprised to know that there is this amazing place in Bulacan.

Last November, our family travelled to the Philippines for the first time after living in Canada for almost 9 years. Despite the issue with the traffic and the very humid and hot weather during our visit, we truly enjoyed our first homecoming.
